Civil Rights and Race Relations in America and Their Impact on the Lives of African Americans
Monday, March 11, 2013
LDF Director-Counsel Sherrilyn Ifill and Special Counsel Debo Adegbile were interviewed on MSNBC at the foot of the Edmund Pettus bridge, the site where marchers were beaten by Alabama police in 1965 while protesting for voting rights. The annual commemoration of the march, which led to passage of the 1965 Voting Rights Act, was attended by LDF Political Participation group lawyers, and featured speeches by Vice-President Joe Biden, Congressman John Lewis -- who was beaten on the bridge in 1965 -- and other civil rights leaders.
